How to care for your teeth

  • Brush your teeth for at least 2 minutes twice per day
  • Clean between your teeth
  • Use mouth wash
  • Keep the sugar frequency to a minimum

Use fluoride toothpaste, don’t rinse with water – just spit out the excess; keeping the excess toothpaste in your mouth helps to protect your teeth.

Cleaning between your teeth using Floss, Tepe brushes or tooth picks to remove food debris and plaque build up will reduce the chances of decay and gum disease.

Using a mouthwash either a chlorhexidine based for gum problems, fluoride based for decay or just minty fresh for fresh breath all help keep your mouth in tip top condition.

Sugar can be found in foods you wouldn’t imagine; such as Tomato Ketchup, Tooth Friendly Ribena, soups & yoghurts! Always read the label.

And, why you should!

Oral health & general health are connected…
Good oral health is really important, not just for a healthy mouth and fresh breath
People with mouth bacteria are more likely to experience heart disease
Pregnant women with gum disease are more likely to have a small or premature baby
Gum disease is linked to blood sugar, and can accelerate the progress of full blown diabetes
Gum disease increases pneumonia risks in the elderly if plaque and bacteria in the mouth increase
See your dentist or dental hygienist for advice that is tailored to your personal needs
